2005 Lexus LS430 Reviews

Needed in 2013, (bought used 2010),
Rocker arm bushings replaced,
front shocks,
brakes (at 60K miles),
both front door lock mechanisms.
I have a warranty from GM when purchasing car at Mountainview Chevy, which I thought was a waste, but not anymore. Paid $4600 for warranty, already got back $3500 worth of service. Don't get breaks done at dealer, it's half price elsewhere and true Lexus break pads are not extra expensive compared to standard oem parts.
